Potato Sausage/Christmas/Confetti Soup

Total Time
Prep 20 mins

My family's Christmas Eve food tradition is potato soup for supper. This is my very favorite. Made "Christmas Soup" by parsley and red pepper; made Confetti Soup by parsley and minced red, orange, yellow and green peppers; I'll try purple too the next time I make it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Simmer the potatoes, onion, salt and water for 20 to 30 minutes until the potatoes are very tender. Do not drain. Mash it all up in the pot.
  2. In the meantime, cook the sage sausage in a skillet, breaking up large pieces. Drain fat.
  3. Add the milk, cream, sage and the cooked sausage to the potato mixture. Combine, stirring well to incorporate the additions.
  4. Heat 5-10 minutes.
  5. For Christmas soup, very thinly slice red pepper. For Confetti soup, mince various colors of bell peppers.
  6. Add parsley and bell pepper to soup; cook until peppers are just tender.

Yummy! I used evaporated milk & also added some carrots that I had in the house that day. I am going to try and freeze this for a later date. I really hope it is just as delicious as the first time around.

Really good but I would drain a bit of the water and I put in 2 lbs of sausage and 1 whole red bell pepper

Very good Soup! We enjoyed this for a light dinner tonight. I did not have any red or green pepper so I omitted. I used evaporated milk not cream. Made for Ausie Swap 35.
